Fletcher Kindergarteners Celebrate Green Up Day With Service

Target 3 – Flexible Learning Environments. FWSU will maximize flexible learning environments by redefining the school day, promoting learning experiences that extend beyond the school classroom, and fostering creativity, innovation, and differentiated learning opportunities for all.
Action Step – Develop opportunities for students to collaborate, innovate, create and
conceptualize in all learning settings.
Indicator of Success – Students are engaged in answering authentic questions and solving problems in collaborative settings.
To celebrate Green-Up Day the Fletcher kindergarten participated in a local activity to improve the outside beauty of our building.  We donned protective gloves, grabbed some bags, and set out to rid our playground of litter.

We read books that showed us that litter is dangerous for wild animals, and can pollute our soil and water. I am afraid that if any of my kindergarten students sees anyone littering, that person will receive a very stern lecture!

learned that dandelions provide important food for bees, and we
shouldn’t pick them.

We will learn about the natural history of our region and see the animals that are native to our rivers, lakes, and streams. We have decided that every day can be Green Up Day!
